In a recent survey conducted through our app, 43% of WHOOP members who responded reported testing positive for COVID-19 at some point. Monitoring your health on a daily basis and knowing your baseline data is now more important than ever.
Many WHOOP members have reported experiencing an increase in respiratory rate coinciding with symptoms of COVID-19.

Our peer-reviewed paper published in the journal PLOS ONE:
People with COVID-19 often have low blood oxygen levels, which may be a warning sign that you are in need of medical care.
Heart rate variability (HRV) is a measure of your autonomic nervous system that is one of the best objective metrics for physical fitness and determining your body’s readiness to perform.
Resting heart rate is a valuable health metric and a key component of your daily WHOOP recovery.
You can track all of these metrics and more on a daily basis via the Health Monitor feature in the WHOOP app.
Things like reducing stress and getting more sleep can help strengthen your immune system and make your body less susceptible to sickness and infection.
We’ve analyzed data on how COVID vaccines affect WHOOP metrics, and a variety of doctors and other experts have joined our podcast to discuss the pandemic.
Our research published in the Journal of Applied Physiology:
You can help us learn more about COVID-19 by contributing to our ongoing research. The WHOOP Journal now includes an option to log if you’ve recently tested positive for COVID (with an additional survey option), as well as a toggle to monitor whether or not you are currently feeling any symptoms.
